When we spoke to our expert crafter, we asked what their top tips are for using magnets in craft projects. The top tips are:

  • Choosing the correct strength – Most craft projects will not require a stronger pull magnet than a 2.2lbs! An insider tip for you is when working through layers of paper or card their strength will be reduced. The one recommended by our expert crafter is our 0.47″ diameter x 0.04″ thick N42 Neodymium Magnet – (1.61lbs) Pull
  • Choose the correct thickness! – This will allow you to keep the magnet hidden behind the paper or card without being seen.
  • Choose the correct poles – Self adhesive magnets are great for all craft projects, but remember magnets have two poles a north and south! Opposite poles attract and like poles repel, so when using self-adhesive magnets make sure to purchase both poles so you can easily open and securely shut your scrapbook.
  • Use a steel disc! – Looking to cut back on a few Dollars, instead of purchasing two opposite poles you can always purchase a magnet and a steel disc. We recommend using 0.63″ diameter x 0.08″ thick 0.2″ c/sink Steel Discs. However, just note if you are looking at purchasing steel disc the attraction will be slightly weaker than if the magnet was attracting to another magnet.
